    Getting "Temp Folder" related error message in windows vista

    I am windows vista user. I have started getting an error message "The Temp folder is on a drive that is full or is inaccessible. Free up space on the drive or verify that you have write permission on the Temp folder." . I am totally unaware of this kind of error. What should I do to fix this issue?

    Re: Getting "Temp Folder" related error message in windows vista

    This problem occurs when you have disabled the User Access Control due to which no program is able to write into directory " %TEMP%". You can solve this issue by re-enabling the Windows User Access Control on your computer. To do the same, follow the below given steps:
    • Navigate to "Control Panel" in windows vista.
    • Now click on "User Account" Icon.
    • On "User Account" option, click "Turn User Account Control On or Off". It will open "User Account Control" Window.To disable the same feature, check the box which says "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" and then click on "Ok".
    • You have done everything. Now restart your computer to complete this action.

    Re: Getting "Temp Folder" related error message in windows vista

    The Temp folder is on a drive that is full or is inaccessible. Free up space on the drive or verify that you have write permission on the Temp folder.
    When installing a program such as Adobe Acrobat 8.0 that requires write access to the %TEMP% directory if the User Access Control is disabled no program will be able to write to this directory. To fix this issue re-enable the Windows User Access Control (UAC).

    Do one of the following solutions:


    Solution 1: Enable User Account Control.

    1. In Control Panels, choose User Accounts.


    2. Click "Turn User Account Control on or off".


    3. Check the box to "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" and then click OK.


    4. Restart your computer.


    5. Install Adobe Reader 8.
    Solution 2: Run the installer in XP Compatibility Mode.

    1. Download the Adobe Reader installer from the Adobe website. When you are prompted to run or save the file, choose save. Save the file to your desktop.

    2. On the Desktop, right-click the AdbeRdr80_en_US file and thenchoose Properties.


    3. Click the Compatibility tab.


    4. Under Compatibility Mode, check Run this program in compatibility mode for: and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the drop down list.


    5. Click Apply, then click OK to close the Properties window


    6. Double-click the AdbeRdr80_en_US file and continue with the installation.

    Dear Friend!!
    It seems that your space for Temporary files if filled and other programs can not write there.
    To free the space, press windows key and "R".
    Then in the box, type-%temp%.
    A folder will open up and you can delete all those files.
    But do no try to trash those files which shows error while deleting.
    those files are use.
    There would be normally 2 files as .tmp format and look like a text file.
    restart your computer.

    Re: Getting "Temp Folder" related error message in windows vista

    Hi,

    Manipulation of the Windows USER ACCESS CONTROL can solve the problem.

    For that you need to go to :

    Start>Control Panel>User Account>Turn User Account Control On or Off>disable Use User Account Control to help protect your computer>OK.

    Reboot to get the effect.

    thanks.
